There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.

When folks are dying, being profiled and abused in real life, the last thing I’d want to see is someone deciding they just want to be quiet about it. You didn’t need to tell us you were a non-black person. The logic in being quiet about straight-up murder told me that from jump. SMH Good luck with that.
